OKay this is the nearest island from the airport, aside from Male. there are tons of ongoing construction to this island, so it might be pretty noisy during the day, even at night... My advice: stay only for a day.. do not buy any souvenir...More

Hulhumale is the nearest pitstop from Maldives airport, and I recommend going here instead of the more crowded Male city. There are lots of affordable accommodations in Hulhumale, plenty of shops, nice jetty. I was just aghast that garbage was just left to lie around...More
